Performed by the William Ferris Chorale; Paul French, Music Director

The Easter texts set to music by Chrysogonus Waddell, a monk of Gethsemani Abbey in Kentucky, span some three thousand years. The musical forms are many. Some will be familiar, others are entirely new. Some incorporate Gregorian chant tunes, others are contemporary. Five anthems are based on fragments of the English plainsong used at the abbey, but some of them have been extended and expanded for a polyphonic choir. Similarly, four hymns written for unison singing in the monastery have also been arranged polyphonically. Sequences, psalms, hymns and antiphons ancient and modern celebrate the Paschal Mystery of Christ's resurrection.
